'll ask about the faa graham says he disagrees with the obama administration's decision not to prosecute the suspect as an enemy combat it. >> i understand we will have a moment of silence for the victims in boston. that is appropriate, and the president is right to lead that effort. quickly, to the families who have lost loved ones, to those breaks as a nation. to the people of boston, you make us proud by the courage you have shown. to the law enforcement officials and intelligence community, god bless you for your hard work and your bravery. iat brings me here today is have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as an enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out the combatant status for the suspect at this time. i believe such a decision is premature. it is impossible for us to gather the evidence in just a few days to determine whether or not this individual should be held for questioning under the law of war. the decision by the administration to try this individual in federal
-existing conditions are being told basically by the obama administration, sorry, we didn't plan for you. mr. gardner: and i understand the money republicans would propose to spend to address this -- mr. wrung: and i understand the money the republicans would spend on this issue, the obama administration wants to spend on advertising, advertising the exchanges, dvertising how the obamacare will work. >> this is the helping sick americans act. tomorrow we're going to defund the preventive care act, the slush fund in the affordable care act that has been going for everything from paths and bike paths and advertising campaigns and spaying and neutering dogs, instead we're going to move that money, defund it, pay down about $8 billion on the deficit and we're going to move money into these high-risk pools that are run by the states that are going to take care of sick americans. mrs. roby: and we look forward to that debate in the next two days. we are closing in on the end of our hour, we are just joined by mr. griffin, the gentleman from arkansas and as you know, we are talking about tonight, this is ht
their rights being read, then law enforcement may be able to do so. and when the obama administration announced it was going to use the public safety exception we said, well, you might be able to do that but recognize that it is limited and narrow. and, so now, i think that might have been invobed. we don't know. that is one of the things that we don't actually currently know now. how this has proceeded. and i think what's important here is not the defendant has counsel and has gone before a judge and so we look to the system to work, which means we expect prosecutors to proceed fairly and prove their case and defense lawyers to zealously perform their duty and we'll look to see what facts they find and what arguments they make going forward. >> host: cliff may, how different is the public safety exception that can be invoked in that first phase after a detention of a suspect? how is that different than looking at military or enemy combatant status? >> guest: the main difference would be as hina has correctly said the public safety exception is very narrow and limited in time. it is not exactly
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
accomplishments of the obama administration in border security. if you could give us the highlights reel and some of the statistics and metrics that you look at. i would like to have that be part of the record. >> i have worked at border for a long time. this has to be sustained. this is an important part of this bill. we have record manpower now between the ports of entry. we've completed all but 1 mile of fence. he end result -- we have a problem in south texas which we are fixing. our seizures for drugs and contraband are up. the the great help of supplemental appropriation several years ago, we have been the to do quite a bit southwest border. >> the deployment of resources have increased? >> to record levels. >> amount of legal immigration as a result has been reduced. >> that is correct. law enforcement is one reason. another major reason is the driver to get a job. that is why this bill helps us at the border. another driver is how long it takes to get a visa. this bill deals with that problem. >> good. thank you very much for holding this hearing. i do think it is important the record ref
've shied away from gun control. this is the first time the obama administration got into this legislative fight and maybe underestimated how difficult it would be to get congress to change. even in a body that is controlled by the democrats. there is a working majority in favor of gun control. >> do you think -- i heard the president specifically call for a more organized efrl on the other side of the issue. do you think that might be happening as well a little bit more? >> sure. you might see ofa, the group that wants to support the president. they might get more involved and democratic law makers want to do more. gun right supporters have a pretty big foothold inside the democratic party especially in the senate. senators in california, senators are a little different than have much more rural areas and push on the gun control issue. you look at the senators from alaska and montana and arkansas, north dakota yesterday that deserted the president on the gun control votes. those are not easy areas to sell as i was talking with somebody the other day. the idea of them coming out one week v
forces? we are giving them, most recently, the obama' administration they would give them 120 $3 million. the opposition clearly that they wanted far more than that. yet we are giving them armor and stuff like that. how can we defeat them when we are supplying them? at the same time, we have some issues like benghazi and the helicopter that had the hard crash landing in south korea this week and nobody has covered that at all. west, texas connected to the bombing in boston? and how much fertilizer was taken away before the explosion occurred? is anybody have any control over that? you may come i just don't see how we can defeat al qaeda and terrorism, homegrown or foreign- born, if we continue to put with free welfare without giving them any drug test or saying you have 30 days to 90 days to get off of welfare and get a job. we just need to bring back our moral values and ethics and start holding our politicians to to make them stand up there and do what they said they do, and not get away with fast and furious. host of issues,, some directly related and some not. yes: it is not uncommon
as secretary of state. i applaud the obama administration for ambitious negotiations on the important trade agreements you talked about -- the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, and the agreement with trading partners in asia. these negotiations hold a promise of boosting the u.s. economy with increased access to our largest markets, and stronger investments that would lead to more jobs. the economic potential is critical at a time when one in five jobs in our country are trade dependent. that trade is about more than tariffs. toope, we know, is critical help the united states with issues that cut across the foreign-policy perspective. asia is also key to several of our economic security interests, as you highlighted in your recent trip. it is critical we deepen economic ties to the ee you and but cannot lose sight of other critical missions, like turkey and russia. tackling some of our toughest geopolitical challenges will require a closer connection, i believe, to these nations. i praise you on your recent trip to turkey, where you have gotten turkey closer to resolving issue
truman through ted kennedy right through the obama administration. it ensured if you had a pre-existing condition you could not be denied coverage. it ensured that every child in america had health coverage. it ensured if you became sick, that you could not become bankrupt. 2/3 of all bankruptcies in the united states were because of illness. so i was very proud of that vote. and i think that it is something modeled upon the massachusetts law, and i voted for obamacare. i believe that it's important. i believe it goes right to fundamental values in our state and in our contry. -- our country. i believe it is a right and not privilege to have access to health care. i voted yes on obamacare. steve voted no. >> mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> sure. that's one. let me just address that, that's probably not our biggest difference. the biggest difference between ed and i are really if you look at our records, and i go back, ed is a policy guy, and i'm a people guy. that's why i was explaining before that on all these fights with the bank bailout, ed was with the banks and i was with the pe
these agencies, not the united states congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate u.s. immigration law. immigration agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the u.s. illegally. we cannot arrest someone who over stays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing laws regarding fraudulent documents and a dandy that by illegal aliens. agents are forced to apply the dream act, not to children in schools, but to adult inmates in jails. mmiething criminals back in nation, criminals who have insulted our officers, and who prey on children. at the same time, i.c.e. officers are punished and threatened by dhs and i.c.e. leadership, threatened with the loss of their jobs simply because they attempt to enforce the nation's immigration laws and provide for public safety. chosen togang 8 has ignore law enforcement officers, have a question i would like to ask them publicly. schumer, dickhuck durbin, john mccain, patrick leahy, lindsey graham, roark menendez, jeff blake, michael bennett's cut as united states senators, the representati
a scathing report tuesday. it concluded that the highest u.s. officials under the bush administration bore responsibility for what it called the indisputable use of torture. the report also urged president obama to close the guantanamo detention camp which has been widely condemned by human rights groups. >>> it's been nearly four years since jackie lost her three daughters. jackie spoke exclusively with nbc's ann curry about her unbearable loss and her return to love and hope. >> i'm their mom and supposed to protect them and i didn't. you know, as -- it's hard to not blame yourself. >> you expected diane to protect your kids. >> um-hum. >> and now you're blaming yourself. >> i'm not blaming myself for the accident, i'm blaming myself for the not being here, you know, it's just, they're not here and i'm their mom. >> you can see more of ann's interview on "rock center with brian williams" friday night at 10:00, 9:00 central time. >>> now for a look at "what's trending today" our roundup of what has you talking online, new york yankees fans set aside their rivalry with the boston red sox t
as some you might not expect. the white house report quoting an administration official said topics included the terrorist attack in boston, immigration reform, economy, and gun control. the dinner came hours after the senate dealt a stinging blow to obama's agending by rejecting a white house backed plan on background checks for gun sales. obama invited a dozen democratic senators to join him for an informal dinner after holding two similar meetings with separate groups of republican senators. senators dick durbin, dianne feinstein, ron wyden, jack reed, landrieu, jean shaheen, michael ben it, and chris coons were some of the democratic senators that attended. first call up during this segment of the "washington journal" comes from tony in mow desso -- modesto, california. hi. caller: i wanted to bring up the fact yesterday about obama was out there and democrats out there talked about how the n.r.a. lied and were calling people liars. what amazed me is they never talk about those, all these lies that had to do with obamacare. lie after lie after lie. that's all the democrats do is
the metrics that this and the future administration will use to make sure that the border is truly secure. congress passed a law in 2007 requiring that the 100% of the e 0%operationally controlled." president obama and secretary napolitano abandoned that metric. the bill before us weakens that law by only requiring the southern border to be 90% effectively secured. in some sectors. only the so-lled high risk sectors. what about the other six? before green cards are allocated to those here illegally, the secretary only has to certify that the security plans and fencing's are "substantially deployed, operational, and completed." if the secretary does not do her job and a commission is created to provide recommendations, this is just a loophole that allows the secretary to neglect doing the job. another area of interest for me is employment verification measures. as i said before so many times, i was here in 1986 when we for the first time made it illegal for employers to hire undocumented individuals. i have been a champion for the e-verify system a staple in every workplace. it is an impor
